ACK black widows in my garden

My husband was working in the garden today and found 3 black widows living under my zucchini plants. This is just creeping me out considering I'm out there on a regular basis picking fruits under and around those huge leaves. I hope they aren't also hiding under my yellow wax beans which are really dense and bushy.

I've never seen them in our veggie gardens anywhere we've lived. We did have some in the garage and in the shed out back at this house but I never thought they'd move to the garden.

I guess I will go ahead and wear gloves when picking fruits.
